Great bass sound at an excellent price. The Sterling SUB Ray5 Bass provides you with stunning, crystal-clear tone. That's because a specially designed low-noise humbucker eliminates any interference your signal may encounter, leaving you with a totally pure bass voice. And an active preamp means you've got an extra kick of power should you need it - great for playing at high output levels.
Playability is supremely fluid thanks to a slick hard maple neck. Its sleekness eliminates friction, allowing your hand to smoothly glide up and down the scale - great for faster paced playing styles. You get all of this in a striking bass that really does look good. A distinctive walnut stain finish looks magnificent. This is a whole lot of bass for your money.

Make sure your basslines really get heard. The Sterling SUB Ray5 bass is an expert at getting your playing right to the front of the mix. A low-noise humbucker at the bridge delivers a distinctly full, thick tone. And, well, there's a clue there in the name: low-noise. So every note you play will benefit from sparkling clarity, accuracy, and definition.
That's not all, though. With an active preamp on-board, you get a noticeably bigger sound than that you get from passive basses. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the preamp acts as an extra power source for the bass, giving your signal additional power and making sure that it's full and crisp - even when travelling through long lengths of cable. So thanks to this, you really do get the best possible bass sound out of your amp.
Above all, playing bass should be fun. And with the Sterling SUB Ray5, it really is. It features a luxuriously smooth hard maple neck. Its sleekness reduces friction between your hand and the neck, and makes gliding from note to note at speed totally easy. Furthermore, a comfortable jatoba fingerboard feels sensational beneath your fingertips, bringing added comfort into your playing experience and helping you truly focus on the music you're playing.
This is one brilliant bass that's built to last. Constructed from top quality tonewoods, Sterling have really gone to town in ensuring the SUB Ray5 is ready for the road. A tough basswood body is incredibly durable, while a 6-bolt neck attachment makes for a sturdy construction that's able to withstand all of the bumps and knocks an instrument might encounter during life on tour. This is built for gigs.
